The first Virtual Athora Great Bruges Marathon will run from 17 to 18 October and offers a safe and challenging running experience that unites runners and walkers from all over the world and invites them to discover Bruges virtually.

Participants can choose from 3 challenges: 8km, 21km or 42,195km. They can run or walk using the revolutionary MyTrace app.

Revolutionary event app MyTrace

Wherever or whenever you run your challenge, the new and revolutionary event app MyTrace promises to offer every participant a real-life event experience.

You can start from your own front door or your favourite training course or your local athletics track and you select one of the available waves. Plenty of other participants will start at the same time. You may not be able to see them, but the voice in your ear pods will tell you which position you are in, what your split times are and which building you would be passing by at that point in the race in the actual Athora Great Bruges Marathon. Afterwards, it is easy to share your result, photos and virtual medal on your social media channels via the app. We are offering the following waves for all the distances:

- 9am: wave 1
- 10am: wave 2
- 2pm: wave 3

- 9:30am: wave 4
- 11am: wave 5
- 2pm: wave 6

For those looking to get the full experience, they can add the Athora Great Bruges Marathon & Half Marathon T-shirt and a real medal to their order when they register.

See you at the virtual starting line!
